         (b)      Unless the Company gives such written notice of nonelection
                  within 30 days after the termination of the employment of the
                  Participant or the cessation of his directorship [as referred
                  to in subsection 2 (a) above], the Participant shall tender to

                  of the Shares of the Company. Upon its receipt of these
                  Shares, the Company shall deliver or mail to the Participant

                  number of Shares set opposite such date or after such Shares
                  are otherwise not subject to the Repurchase Option pursuant
                  to subsection 3 (c) above, such Shares shall then be subject
                  to all of the terms and provisions of the Stock Purchase
                  Agreement by and between the Company and its shareholders
                  dated July 1, 1984 (the "Stock Purchase Agreement") and all
                  the restrictions on transfer set forth therein as if the
                  Participant and the Company had executed such agreement. The
                  termination of such Participant's employment or directorship
                  shall be deemed to constitute written notice of a proposed
                  transfer, disposition or sale thereof under subsection 2 (a)
                  of such Stock Purchase Agreement.

         (d)      The purchase price for such Shares may be payable, at the
                  discretion of the Company, in cancellation of all or a portion
                  of any outstanding indebtedness of the Participant to the
                  Company, or in cash (by check), or both.

         (e)      If, at any time, prior to the exercise of the Repurchase
                  Option under sub section 3 (a) above, the common stock of the
                  Company is acquired through merger, acquisitions
                  consolidation, purchase, tender offer or otherwise (the
                  "Acquisition"), the Participant shall be paid by the Company
                  a sum of money determined by multiplying the cash price per
                  share (or monetary equivalent thereof) received by the holders
                  of the common stock times the number of shares then subject to
                  the Repurchase Option. Such payment shall be made upon the
                  Closing of the Acquisition.

                  without limitation the restrictions on transfer set forth in
                  this Section 4 and the Repurchase Option, and the permitted
                  transferee shall, as a condition to the transfer, deliver to
                  the Company a written instruction confirming that the
                  transferee shall be bound by all of the terms and conditions

and covenants as follows:

         (a)      The Participant is purchasing the Shares for his own account
                  for investment only, and not with a view to, or for sale in
                  connection with, any distribution of the Shares in violation
                  of the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act"), or any
                  rule or regulation under the Securities Act.

         (b)      He has had an opportunity he deems adequate to obtain from
                  representatives of the Company the information necessary to

                  in the Company.

         (c)      He has sufficient experience in business, financial and
                  investment matters to be able to evaluate the risks involved
                  in the purchase of the Shares and to make an informed
                  investment decision with respect to that purchase.

         (d)      He can afford a complete loss of the value of the Shares and
                  is able to bear the economic risk of holding the Shares for an
                  indefinite period.

         (e)      He understands that:

                  (i)      The Shares cannot be sold, transferred, or otherwise
                           disposed of unless they are subsequently registered

                  the certificate representing the Shares:

                  "The shares represented by this certificate have not been
                  registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
                  may not be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of in the
                  absence of an effective registration statement under the Act
                  or an opinion of counsel satisfactory to the corporation to
                  the effect that registration is not required."

         8. Adjustments. If from time to time during the term of the Repurchase
Option, there is any stock split, stock dividend, stock distribution, or other
reclassification of the common stock of the Company, or any merger,
consolidation, or sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company, any
and all new, substituted, or additional securities to which the Participant is
entitled by reason of his ownership of the Shares shall be subject immediately

                  be withheld with respect to the purchase of the Shares by the

                  the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, to recognize
                  ordinary income in the year of acquisition of the Shares, the
                  Company will require at the time of that election an
                  additional payment for withholding tax purposes based on the
                  difference, if any, between the purchase price for the Shares
                  and the fair market value of the Shares as of the day
                  immediately preceding the date of the purchase of the Shares
                  by the Employee.
